News of a BBC Mystery series: The Aurelio Zen books, set in Italy, by the late Michael Dibdin, have been turned into a television series (three films so far) starring the gorgeous Rufus Sewell as Zen. Italian scenery and Rufus Sewell - what could be better? Read more about it here.
I'm assuming Netflix will have the episodes at some point. I'm more familiar with Donna Leon's series of books set in Italy, but maybe this new tv series will push me over to the Zen side.
